Jim Wick honored by Wisconsin Heights Optimists


The Wisconsin Heights Optimist Club of Mazomanie and Black Earth recognized District 1 EMT Director Jim Wick as their Volunteer of the Year for 2020. Unable to honor Jim at their April meeting as is customary, Heights Optimist President Sara Shackelton presented Jim with his certificate of appreciation at the EMS station this week. Jim is a 36 year veteran of District 1 EMS service. Over the years he has given much of himself to the service, including recruitment, training, education, PR, and covering shifts not filled by EMT’s, or drivers. He often works beyond his required hours, and when covering the empty slots on the schedule, he doesn’t ask for anything in return. Jim works tirelessly for the people of District 1 (Mazomanie, Black Earth, and the surrounding area). Pictured is Jim Wick (left) with Sara Shackelton (right).

Flanagan named Optimist Middle Level Leader for the month of November


Ava Flanagan is the Optimist Sauk Prairie Middle Level Leader for November. She is an eighth grader and the daughter of Melissa Kropp and Gregory Flanagan. She was nominated by her core team of teachers.  ”When our team was tasked with nominating a Middle Level Leader, Ava was a student that came to mind immediately. From the very first day of school, she has been hard-working, responsible, and kind to everyone around her. She regularly checks in with teachers, even when she’s learning at home, to make sure she is completing her work to the highest quality possible. She is also a student we can always rely on to help her peers as well. When our team got a new student, she was the first to volunteer to share her work with that student so that the new student could get up to speed. She is also one of the first students to help with daily class operations, even without a teacher needing to ask. Ava leads by example and truly lives by the values we have at Sauk Prairie Middle School to “Be Responsible, Be Respectful, Be Safe and Be Resourceful”, said her teachers. Ava is involved in dance and swim team outside of school. In the future, she hopes to attend the University of Minnesota to study Medicine.
